I joined just to respond to this post!

I would strongly recommend against using a campus board without a very solid climbing background. They are designed to significantly work finger strength and are not at all suitable without quite a bit of preparation. I often hear recommendations that you should be climbing 5.10 or .11 or even higher before bothering wit a campus board.

If you want to develop basic finger strength, just take up climbing -- it's great! For fitness and power, rope climbing, bachar ladders, pullups, etc. are all better tools.
